Mini Hollywood – Tabernas

Town square of Mini Hollywood

Mini Hollywood or Oasys is a Western-styled theme park, located near the town of Tabernas, 35km from Almería. Originally known as Yucca City, the set was designed by Carlo Simi and built for Sergio Leone’s For a Few Dollars More in 1965. It was also used as a set for other films, such The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). After the filming of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was completed, the local extras in the project bought the set and ran it as a tourist attraction. They were later bought out by a hotel group.

The park features daily cowboy stunt shows, such as a mock bank raid and a re-enactment of the final moments of Jesse James. It also has a zoo with fantastic views over the dessert.

A great outing with the whole family!
